THE Cumbria Police Rural Crime Team has been educating cadets. 

The team has been working with different groups of cadets to help them understand the importance of tackling rural crime. 

A spokesperson said: "Part of our work involves speaking with different groups of people, raising awareness about rural crime. We've spoken to three groups of Cumbria Police cadets so far this year.

"This week was the turn of Penrith, where we discussed livestock, equine, environmental and wildlife offences, as well as machinery theft, and showed some crime prevention measures.

"The cadets then created posters with some super advice. Well done all."
